Bacon wrapped.....

Recommended Posts

Now that I have your attention grin

In need a last minute appetizer to bring to your family Holiday get together? Here's an easy one that will make you the hero.

Bacon Wrapped Lil' Smokies

1 lb. bacon

1 package of Lil' Smokies (Cocktail Wieners)

1 cup of Brown Sugar

Cut the slab of bacon into thirds so essentially you have 3 groups of 3" bacon strips. Wrap each Lil' Smokey in a bacon strip and secure with a toothpick. put them on a baking sheet and sprinkle the brown sugar over the top of them. I use about a cup but you can use more if you'd like. Bake at 350 deg until the bacon is crisp and the sugar is melted. The sugar will caramelize into a syrup and glaze each morsel.

Watch them disappear!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We use basically the same recipe for pheasant except we put a splash of BBQ sauce on each when about about 3/4 done. Never any left overs.

Pig candy....I basically stumbeled on this one myself, but slightly different. Cook bacon in pan, when it is close to being done (done is differnent for all...mine is crispy) add some maple syrup to each slice. Allow to caramelize in the pan, and serve...Delicious, but i think i'm trying straight brown sugar and Cayenne as suggested!!

Might as well keep up the bacon wrapped theme.....

Get a can of whole water chestnuts.

Drain and let them soak in either soy sauce or teriaki sauce for a few hours.

Roll the water chestnuts in sugar and then wrap with bacon and put a toothpick thru 'em.

My brother makes bacon wrapped pheasant

cut a small cube of pheasant breast, place next to a water chestnut slice, wrap in bacon and skewer with a toothpick. Bake for about 35 min, then broil for about 8-10 min until the bacon is crisped up a little. No sauce or anything needed. Possibly the best food I've ever eaten.

I've almost tossed my lunch from eating an entire pan of these.

I also make bacon wrapped pheasant. Cut pheasant into 1 inch strips and then cut those into about 2 inch lenghts. Put the pheasant in a halved jalapeno and then wrap with bacon. Use toothpick to hold everything in place. Broil for about 15 minutes. Nice appetizer. Sometimes I marinate the pheasant sometimes not.

Holy buckets, that looks/sounds good. I love wild turkey (not the stuff in the bottle either), italian dressing as a marinade, and bacon. All 3 of these together has got to be phenomenal. YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!

These are excellent. Once or twice a year if I get into some dink walleye I will keep a few and grill em up like this. To add take a scallion wrap the fillet around it and than wrap the bacon.

Enjoy.

    • Careful, man.  Any such suggestions get criticized pretty heavily.  I came here around this time last year and posted something similar, and I hadn't been on this forum for quite some time.  My question was met by one of the mods with mock & ridicule.  But he thought that was okay as long as he put a smiley face or an lol after every sentence.  Funny, funny guy.  No wonder it's a ghost town around here.  Too bad, this was a must-read destination back in the day.
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
    • Way to go Britt!
    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
